Technology: We preserve 1 billion Web captures per week! We’ve saved 20 petabytes (that’s 20,000,000,000,000,000 bytes) of data. That takes a lot of servers, bandwidth and power. The cost of storing information in our data centers is a fraction of the cost of Amazon Cloud.
Staff: Most top websites employ huge staffs. We employ 140 people around the world—engineers, archivists, librarians and book scanners. Most of our staff could be making much more at a company driven by profit, but they choose to work for a non-profit powered by a huge mission.
Projects: This year we are building the next-generation Wayback Machine, including for the first time a Wayback Website Search engine.
